Three idyllic jewels
The three small and delightful holiday villages of Oberperfuss, Unterperfuss and Ranggen enjoy a unique and quiet location at the entrance to the Sellrain Valley. They are located 600 to 800 metres above sea level and offer an exciting range of sports and activities. Oberperfuss was already a popular spa and health resort at the turn of the century and attracted the first guests to the high alpine plateau. Today, visitors appreciate the village charm, the proud traditions and the lovingly decorated, old farm houses amongst other things. “Gemütlichkeit” (an atmosphere of comfort, charm and warmth) is exemplified here and the people love to spend their time outside. Their “local mountain” – the Rangger Köpfl – makes this easy: in summer it’s a hiking and biking paradise, in winter it offers numerous opportunities for skiing, tobogganing, winter hiking and ski touring. Rich and varied holiday enjoyment is guaranteed year round thanks to lovely apartments with comfortable flair, a campsite & brewery in Unterperfuss, farm holidays, many winter sports activities and adventure hiking trails, such as the “Geisterwanderweg” (Ghost Trail). And the Capital of the Alps with its many cultural treasures is only 16 kilometres away – for even more holiday fun.
Summer holidays in the heart of nature
This is a place where life is spent outdoors. When the sun is shining, the Rangger Köpfl offers many opportunities for relaxation and enjoyment on its 100 kilometres of wonderful hiking trails.
Whether going on foot or by bike – the summer adventures in Oberperfuss, Unterperfuss and Ranggen start right on the doorstep. An eight-seater gondola leads up to Stiglreith where you can enjoy countless hikes of varying difficulty levels or impressive views of the surrounding mountains from the Panorama Restaurant. A little further on – past the reservoir and Restaurant Sulzstich – you’ll find the Rosskogelhütte at an altitude of 1,777 metres. This mountain hut with its panoramic terrace and breathtaking views of the Inn Valley is well-worth a visit. Nowhere else does food taste so good – you’ve earned it after the walk and are sure to have a healthy appetite thanks to the clean mountain air. In 2015, the well-known local film “Hanna Hellman” was filmed at this mountain hut – this region with its fantastic backdrop has always enchanted audiences.
The Rosskogelhütte can also be reached on a mountain bike – the sunshine, legendary panoramic views and cool refreshments are even more enjoyable after a 2.5-hour ride and 921 vertical metres. The “Inntalradweg” (Inn Cycle Path) – an almost flat bike path that passes through Unterperfuss on its way from Landeck to Kufstein – is a must for cycling fans. The “Oberperfer Geisterwanderweg” (Ghost Trail) is one of a kind in the Tyrolean Alps. This great themed trail starts 1,360 metres above sea level and passes 21 exciting stations where ghosts and “tree beards” tell captivating stories at the press of a button. The hike leads to a beautiful reservoir with stunning reflections of the Kalkkögel mountain range. The “Besinnungswanderung” (Path of Reflection) and the “Way of St. James” in Unterperfuss invite reflection to help visitors unwind and feel a sense of balance and harmony. For kids, there are modern and diverse children’s playgrounds in each of the villages – the new playground in Oberperfuss is a particular hit for little explorers.
Culture, fun and gourmet delights
Joie de vivre, humour and happiness – these are the things connect people in the holiday villages of Oberperfuss, Unterperfuss and Ranggen. These truly original, remarkable and traditional people enjoy sharing their customs and culture with guests.
Open-air concerts, Tyrolean evenings, village & marquee festivals and parades, provide deep insights into the local culture and are a testament to how precious tradition remains for the people today. The Anich-Hueber Museum portrays the memorable life of Imperial Cartographer Peter Anich and his assistant Blasius Hueber, both of whom were born in Oberperfuss long ago. The museum also displays the works of the Weber family – who were famous organ manufacturers. Sundials by Peter Anich can be admired throughout Tyrol – the ones on the parish church in Natters and at the Hörtnagl family farm in Unterperfuss are particularly extraordinary and well-worth a visit. The culinary delights from the region also never fail to impress. Especially in Ranggen – the village has been recognised as a “Genussregion” (gourmet region) thanks to its high-quality natural products. At local farms, you can taste fresh fruit juices, schnapps and ciders, as well as homemade bread, specialty cheeses and hearty Tyrolean “Speck” (dry-cured ham). In addition to the many delicious specialties, farm visits also offer insights into the everyday work of farmers, the vibrant traditions and herbal lore. The “good spirit” can be found at the Branger Alm in Unterperfuss: this restaurant and brewery offers excellent and award-winning products, as well as a look behind the scenes of their schnapps distillery. A true experience – not just for schnapps lovers.
A horse-drawn carriage ride is a lovely way to explore these three holiday villages. Alternatively, follow the impressive “Kapellenwanderung” trail to 20 chapels in Oberperfuss – situated between 815 and 1,500 metres above sea level – and enjoy the numerous cafés and restaurants along the way. During the Christmas season, you can experience the more reflective and tranquil side of the region with a nativity scene tour – Oberperfuss and Ranggen are two of the most impressive destinations for viewing nativity scenes in Tyrol.
